Newborn Baby Photography – NE Portland

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on July 24th, 2013

Joy! There’s a new beautiful baby in the world.
Another boot camp pal-o-mine has created a wee one and she sure is cute and tiny.
I met up with Avery, Mark and their new baby at their gorgeous home for a relaxed portrait session.
It was so much fun to see this little babe and her parents getting to know each other, and capturing one of her wild and wonderful early days of life.

Family Portraits – Portland’s International Rose Garden

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on July 18th, 2013


Recently, I met up with one of my very favorite families at the Portland International Rose Garden for a beautiful family portrait session while the garden was in full bloom.

It was just the perfect early summer evening in Portland, and  how can  you go wrong with a family this fun and adorable? I meet up with the Iversen’s about every 6 months so that we can continue their collection of family portraits. It’s such a lovely experience to see these cute kids grow and change over the years.

Thanks for another great session!

Wedding Engagement Portraits – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on July 16th, 2013


These gorgeous people will be tying the knot this August at their home in Lake Oswego! It’s sure to be a stunning affair. This pair has been a pair for some time now and have decided to make it official and celebrate with friends and family.

In preparation for their fabulous event we met up for a quick engagement portrait session on a sunny, summer evening. I love shooting engagement portraits for many reasons, it helps us work together in a low stress situation – so we can talk about what types of images we all like best and I can get to know the couple better. Also, couples commonly tell me that they love hanging their engagement portraits up around the house because they capture their true, casual essence together.

I can’t wait to document Alex & Teresa’s big day!



Family Portraits in the Park – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on July 15th, 2013

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this lately but… I LOVE my job. Working with families to create a lifetime of memories is one of my favorite things in the world.
Around Christmastime last year, I answered a phone call from San Francisco (my old stomping grounds), on the other end was a friendly gentleman who wanted to purchase the perfect gift for his nephew & family here in Portland. We discussed their needs and I sent the gift certificate directly to his nephew. Just last month I finally got to meet Adrian, his lovely wife Saraea and their adorable little boys. The family of four had a great time frolicking around the park and I snapped shots of these energetic munchkins as quickly as I could. We ended up with a fabulous little selection of portraits that we all love.

Since our session this foursome became a fivesome! And I had the pleasure of meeting their new addition at our ordering session. She’s going to be one tough little gal with these two brother as playmates! I am so looking forward to my next session with this family.

Family Portraits with three generations – SE Portland

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on July 10th, 2013


A few weeks ago I met up with the Lim family for a portrait session with three generations.

It was so fun to see this sweet little family play and interact together. We had a great time running around the Rhododendron Gardens, capturing lovely little moments.  This family purchased their family portrait session at a fundraiser for the H3 Project, which is an organization that helps transition homeless families into housing. I was happy to donate to this important cause and I know this family was too.
